SUOC188 Snowflake Sentiments

The theme this time on SUO Challenges is “any winter holiday card”.  Now…I know you are looking at this and saying “Wow!  That is BRIGHT!”  And…it is!  But, I thought it was sort of whimsical and really non-traditional for a snowflake card so I went with it!

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White was stamped randomly with the snowflakes in Snowflake Sentiments with Versarmark Ink.  Then Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay Inks were sponged on top.  You can see the faint snowflakes in the background under the ink!
  • The snowflakes were stamped on scrap Whisper White and cut with the Stitched Shapes circles in different sizes.
  • The greeting was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White, then cut with the Oval Stitched Shape.  They were all placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The flourishes and small snowflake were cut from Silver Glimmer Paper with the Swirly Snowflake Thinlit Dies and tucked under the circles and by the oval.
  • Some Rhinestone Jewels were added to the centers of the snowflakes.

How’s that for a very non-traditional holiday card?  Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team for SUO Challenges did this week with this theme! I’m sure they will have some great ideas!

Saturday Blog Hop – Fun Edge Cards

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Fun Edge Cards” this week!  I think a fancy edge just adds so much to a card…but other than the edge, my card is super simple!

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 6-3/4 piece of Real Red, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The snowflake edge from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits cut the bottom edge of a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White and then adhered on top of the Real Red shorter front.
  • The red Snowflake edge from Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits was cut from Real Red, then the snowflakes individually cut and added to the other edge with Tombow Monoadhesive Glue.
  • Merry Christmas from Snowflake Sentiments was stamped with Memento Black Ink on front.
  • Inside a 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Metallic Gold Paper was added to the bottom of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Some Gold/Silver Washi Tape was placed along the edge to hide the seam.
  • The inside greeting from Snowflake Sentiments was stamped with Memento Black Ink, then the snowflakes stamped with Real Red Ink.
